HOSA Students Excel at State

Overland High School’s HOSA Chapter competed at the State Leadership Conference at the Sheraton Denver from February 22–24. The top ten were recognized and received a ‘top ten’ lapel pin. The top three of each event get the opportunity to advance to the International Leadership Conference being held June 22–25 in Nashville, TN.

We had seven compete. Out of the 7, four of the members made top ten in their event. Out of the 4 that placed in the top ten, 1 placed in the top three and has the opportunity to advance to the ILC.
